The Houston Texans uniform history began with the team’s founding in 1999, but a few changes were made upon their debut season in 2002.
Something unique with the team is in their short history, they’ve kept an identical uniform throughout, with only a Color Rush jersey and a tiny change to their jerseys in 2019 being the two major changes.
